While many celebrate Easter Monday today, on Saturday scores of Montegonians and those in the entertainment industry gathered at Pier 1 for a different reason - to celebrate Robert Russell. His daughter Shari Edwards organised a 70th birthday party for him and in attendance were over 300 persons, including former Prime Minister Bruce Golding. Russell received some touching tributes from long-time friends Johnny Gourzong, Godfrey Dyer, Frankie Bullock, Eleanor Miller, and Golding. Here's a peek inside the celebrations to get your week going.
